The view here was exquisite. The price was not that bad either. You can get a promotion if you come in groups. I bought a ticket with pop corn and soft drink with it.

We went there in mid morning, there are a lot of padlocks for "love", and considering MERS outbreak, quite crowded too. The view is great. It is worth to visit.

My family enjoyed the trip to N Seoul Tower on our own, no tour guide! Going up I got tired because the road was so steep, but when we got to the tower, it was awesome! You can see Seoul in 360 degrees! Even the elevator ride was enjoyable. My daughters hanged their padlocks with notes in them. And got... More

If you go by public transport, be aware that you need to walk steadily uphill for quite a distance to reach the cable car platform. A cable car transports you to the base of the tower. Otherwise, take a taxi to the table car platform. i recommend to go 1 hour before sunset to get a day time view, a... More

We took the cable car up to N Seoul Tower and were amazed with the views from the top. Beneath the tower they were doing a photo shoot with panda figures to raise awareness of the 1600 pandas remaining in the world. The Trick Museum and the observatory were worth visiting and the souvenirs available on top were also very... More

Korean's like to hike so bring your walking shoes. This place is a bit of a walk up a hill. But what a view. I got a coffee at the top and Wow, country side one way and the big city the other. The Korean people are friendly and most know just enough English to help you get what you... More

Nice city view especially in the evening. However we queue over 2 hours for cable ride, maybe peak season. When we visited there, they have mini music concert with good atmosphere. In fact, it has a big area for walking besides tower. Love locks are found over the fence ~ romantic human interactive tourism.
